Cloud Computing produces competitive advantages. Also for you.
Cloud computing is about moving IT away from its own hosting solutions and data centers to so-called cloud providers.
Large companies such as Amazon, Google and Microsoft have recognized that they never fully utilize the capacity of their data centers and rent the free capacity to third parties. This has developed into a business model for Cloud Computing.
However, as in many other areas, the same applies here: It only makes sense to switch to the cloud if it is done correctly. The choice of provider plays a major role here, but much more important is the software architecture, which should be perfectly matched to the cloud provider in order to fully exploit the financial and performance potential.

Flexibility as a competitive advantage
Own hosting solutions or the operation of your own data center means a large block of fixed costs for a company, because the hardware must be designed for times of maximum use. Conversely, this means that most of the time the expensive resources provided are only used to a small extent.
The use of IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) offers in the cloud can help here. First of all, the costs are converted into variable costs because more or less resources can be used and thus paid for at any time.
This scaling can be automated according to the current usage. This results in significant cost savings and the application delivers fast response times even under high load.
Access proven solutions
When developing and operating software solutions, the maxim is: "Don't reinvent the wheel", i. e. if possible, you should use tried and tested solutions that already exist. Here too, Cloud Computing offers a wide variety of services with PaaS (Platform as a Service) and SaaS (Software as a Service).
For example, using a database that is available as a PaaS can greatly reduce the administration effort for this part of the application. In addition, there are the scaling effects described above. Tools for IoT (Internet of Things) and ML (Machine Learning) are also part of the Cloud Computing offerings.
Advantages at a glance:
- Flexible costs
- Automatic scaling for fast response times
- Cost savings through higher capacity utilization
- Reduced administration effort
- Proven solutions
